The Grande Age of Hyboria

Joseph put me on to this fascinating new blog that's devoted to miniatures wargaming in an alternate future of Conan's world, one that's reminiscent of the Napoleonic Age of our early 19th century. The blog hasn't been updated in almost a month, so I hope it's not stillborn. Check it out if you've ever wondered what Aquilonian Line Infantry or the Poitainian Guard might look like in this unusual take on Robert E. Howard's creation.

  3. That is definitely niche to about the sixth power! I consider myself a HUGE fan of the Hyborian Age and I'm finding a hard time finding a point to this.

  4. For what it is worth though, I like the idea of Black Powder fantasy enough that I would like to see something done with it. Better than the 9 millionth Medieval fantasy game.

    It is, at least as Howard envisaged it. That's why this is an alternate future of the Hyborian Age.
